"SCI-BONO - JULES VERNE COLLEGE" Robotics Collaboration
On Saturday, 18 February 2012, two professors of Lycée Jules Verne (Marc JOLLIOT and Jean-Marc ORIONE) led a robot building workshop at the SCI-BONO Discovery Centre in Johannesburg, with two educators from the SciBono centre. Michael FLETT, a fifth-year student, represented the LJV robotics club.
The workshop welcomed thirty students and educators, constituting 9 teams, from four schools and educational centers in the area, (St Mary’s, Arcelor Mittal Science Centre, the German School in Johannesburg, and Osizweni Education Centre in Secunda).
During just 6 hours of intensive work, six teams had built the robot and its control box for the forward / reverse and left / right turns. Three teams had built a robot capable of putting an egg in a raised "nest" up to 10 cm off the floor.
This workshop took place in preparation for the South African National Robotics Tournament "AFROBOT 2012".
